Valbonne at Christmas
I had real problems yesterday; I got up early, posted my Sky Watch Friday photo and went calmly on with the day never once losing sight of the fact it was Friday. Except it wasn't...it was, of course, Saturday. What is shocking is the length of time it took me to realise. I always knew holidays were bad for me.
I was in Valbonne for the Christmas market on Christmas Eve. It's always a great place to pick up stocking fillers and quirky little gifts also at the end of the afternoon they hand out mulled wine which, of course, is simply not a reason for going..The animation for the day was these guys. I have absolutely no idea who they were or why they were dressed up in these colourful costumes but they blew on their whistles and banged on their drums all round the streets of the village and it got everyone tapping their feet and smiling..
